This is another setback for the government. After refusing to validate the state accounts for 2021 and 2022, the National embly on Tuesday rejected those of Social Security for 2022. The opposition united to obtain this result.
The Minister of Health François Braun defended in vain “a responsible trajectory”, while his colleague in Public Accounts Gabriel Attal called on the opposition not to “sweep” a text “automatically”.
By 134 votes against 115, the deputies refused to give “discharge” to the government for the execution of this budget. From the RN to LFI, the deputies pinned an “insincere” budget, having imposed “austerity”. The LR elected officials distinguished themselves by deploring an insufficient “control” of the accounts. The right-wing dominated Senate must now decide.
On the evening of the 14th day of mobilization against the pension reform, the rebellious David Guiraud promised: “we will challenge line by line each of the texts of law which touches on a hair of our Social Security and our pensions”.
The Renaissance group deplored a “media coup” of the opposition, but which “will not change anything in the daily life of the French”.
On Monday, the embly had postponed under the same conditions State budget settlement bills for 2022 as well as for 2021. The settlement bill had indeed been rejected for the first time on August 3.
This approval of past budgets was a simple accounting formality before. But it has turned into a puzzle in the new configuration of the embly, without an absolute majority since last June.
This new victory for the opposition sends a worrying signal to the executive, as another text, much more important for the government, arrives: the public finance programming law, which sets the country’s budgetary trajectory until 2027. .
